Some kids don't know, so for the benefit of everyone born in 1980 and earlier, Rodney Dangerfield was a popular comic actor who is best known for the catchphrase "I don't get no respect". The NBA equivalent to him would be the Utah Jazz. Without getting too into it I wanted to post some screenshots from Operationsports.com which display the Utah Jazz roster for the upcoming console game NBA 2K9. Yes, it's a video game, and yes I can chance the stats whenever I wish -- but it's funny that the people who make the game seem to believe that Andrei Kirilenko has C+ athleticism, or that Jason Kidd is a better three point shooter than Deron Williams. It's almost as if they just made up the roster skills without even looking at box scores, or game tape -- the Jazz don't even get the respect of people making video games!
Other interesting anomalies include Carlos Boozer being a better defender than Mehmet Okur (did these guys even watch them play?); Matt Harpring has a B- rating in perimeter defense; Morris Almond is better over-all than both Ronnie Brewer and C.J. Miles -- and Ronnie Price is better than all three (so I guess we know who should start at the 2 for us this season . . . ).
It's just a wonder how a team with such a crappy roster manages to win over 50 games, their division and a handful (more than 4) playoff games every season . . .
